I’m sure you have heard the term carbon footprint, well fashion has its own carbon footprint.

So what exactly is a carbon footprint?

“It is the amount of carbon dioxide, also known as greenhouse gases, and other carbon compounds emitted due to the consumption of fossil fuels by a particular person, group, etc.”

About 3% of carbon dioxide from global production is from clothing, per year. That’s more than Australia’s total carbon dioxide levels.
